=== WebSocket support ===
''Brief explanation:'' Add support for XMPP over WebSocket ([https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7395 RFC 7395]) to the XMPP Client Library Smack.<br/>
''Involved Technologies:'' Android compatible Java 8, WebSockets<br/>
''Mentor(s):'' Paul Schaub (vanitasvitae) [mailto:vanitasvitae@fsfe.org <vanitasvitae@fsfe.org>]<br/>
''Deliverables / Expected Results:''<br/>
* Being able to connect to XMPP services via WebSocket.
* Definition of a WebSocket interface on top of the used WebSocket libraries, allowing for different WebSocket implementations (one implementation must be OkHttp for Android support).
# Design and implement WebSocket interface to use by XmppWebsocketconnection
# Implement automatic XMPP client to server transport discovery (Implicit TLS, TCP, WebSocket, BOSH)
# Interoperability tests against a different implementation
# Plug Smack with WebSocket into Spark, our FOSS XMPP client
Currently Smack can establish connections via TCP/IP and HTTP via BOSH. WebSockets are yet another way to connect to a server.
